Mentor: Abel Fam

Thaddaeus is passionate about Art, Science, Design & Technology. He enjoys making and understanding how things work and is constantly working on projects both big and small in his own free time. He joined the Lighthouse Programme hoping to see how his ideas can be stretched further and see them come to life.

The Project

LokNsit is a personal take on a portable chair that can be separated into three components that is tiny enough to be taken anywhere in a backpack and to be used anytime you want.

The most fun thing for me was to see my project grow, from just a bunch of cardboard to these new chairs I’ve created and exploring new ideas to solve the problems we encountered. Eventually, I also hope to explore placing strategic holes in the panel like a honeycomb to make it lighter yet strong. Like VIVIWARE Panel!
